Gay Marriage? Yes, says Jersey, CI

THE first gay weddings in Jersey could take place later this year after the States legalised same-sex marriage today.

The Jersey Evening Post reports:

Members finally approved the proposals – which were lodged by Chief Minister Ian Gorst – to overhaul the Island’s marriage laws after a process which initially began in 2014. The only Member to vote against was St Martin Constable Michel Le Troquer. Senator Sarah Ferguson abstained.
